Cinco de Mayo Margaritas

According to our good friends at Wikipedia:

“While Cinco de Mayo has limited or no significance nationwide in Mexico, the date is observed in the United States and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. However, a common misconception in the United States is that Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s Independence Day. Mexico’s Independence Day is actually September 16 (dieciséis de septiembre in Spanish), which is the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico.”

So, let me translate this into blender-speak: Rev up your blenders!!!!

Head this way and select among our tasty recipes! Spike’s World Famous Margarita Recipes

Watermelon Margaritas

You should know: This is an interesting recipe. It can be made either in the blender, or shaken individually. Either way, it’s oh so tasty!

Here’s a tip: Plan ahead and freeze your watermelon chunks in advance, and use a little less ice.

Here’s what you need to make it (per blenderful): 1 1/4 cups of seedless (or seeds removed) cubed Watermelon, 6 ounces Tequila, 4 ounces Melon Liquor or Midori, 4 ounces sour mix, Ice

And how to do it: For the blender, well shoot, you need instructions? Ok. throw in the liquids, blend for 10 seconds, then throw in the watermelon and ice and mix up to a minute depending on the strength of your blender.

For the non-blender recipe, try this…I think it’s better than the blender version. Throw in your watermelon chunks into a small glass or large shot glass and squeeze so about 2/3 of the juice is released. Put the juice and the fruit into a cocktail shaker along with 2 ounces tequila, 1 ounce melon liquor or Midori, 2 ounces sour mix and some ice. Shake a few times (don’t kill it) and strain into your margarita glass. When you’re done drinking the margarita, you’re left with some alcohol saturated watermelon!!!
It’s my understanding that some people (in Pennsylvania apparently) like salt on their watermelons….seems so natural to salt the rim of the glass too!

Cinnamon and Orange Margaritas

You should know: Cinnamon/Orange may not seem traditional for a margarita, but have you tried this recipe? You need to! Of course, if you budget allows, you may certainly use Goldschlager!

Here’s what you need to make it (per blenderful): 6 ounces Tequila; 3 ounces cinnamon schnapps; 3 ounces orange juice; 5 ounces sour mix; ice; dashes of cinnamon; orange for garnish

And how to do it: Pour the liquids into your blender and mix for about 10 or so seconds. Add a good dash of cinnamon for each serving. Then add two handfuls of ice for each serving you’re mixing. Blend for at least another 30 seconds…or up to a minute depending on your blender’s power! Garnish with a foo-foo orange slice if you need to!

Luscious LIcks Margaritas

You should know: Ever heard of “43?” It’s a vanilla based liquor that’s quite tasty! What’s it doing in a margarita? Isn’t that illegal, you ask?

Ok, perhaps it’s a bit unorthodox, but you have to try this one out. I suggest making this in a cocktail shaker, but a blender works too. If you can’t find “43″ then ask your friendly liquor store to order it for you. It’s worth it.
You’re going to experience a spectacular flavor explosion….and you’ll understand why the name “Luscious Licks” Margarita is so well deserved!

Here’s what you need to make it (per blenderful): (Per serving) 1 1/2 oz. “43″, 3/4 oz. Triple Sec, 1 oz. Sour Mix, 1/3 oz. Lime Juice, 3/4 oz. creme, Graham Crackers

And how to do it: Combine the ingredients listed above (make sure to add creme or half and half..it’s a requirement) and pour into a margarita glass that’s lined with graham crackers, not salt. (I’m not making this up….Trust me!)
